I posted too soon. Updated If you haven't been to the awesome Blaise K's How I Learned Reading Series, you're missing out. (And if you don't know who Blaise is, see Bazima.com)
I went last month and, um, not only wound up going home with someone but heard some hilarity from Chelsea Peretti (would've heard more but I was late - don't be late!).
Also...Blaise is reading May 21st at In The Flesh. I can't be at the March 25th event cause I'll be doing Jon Friedman's Rejected from Rejected show at Housing Works (more on that TK), but in April, I'm so there. So make Happy Ending Lounge your home, at least twice a month!

Liam was head writer for The Humor Network, where his work was read on a regular basis by about two-and-a-half million readers. One of them worked at a vineyard and sent him two free bottles of wine.
